Final Project Specs

Not technically a course this is another experiment in offering a full ds106 experience to open participants based on previous syllabi taught at the University of Mary Washington (UMW). The first was August-December 2013 as a “Headless ds106”. This Open ds106 is a re-organization of that experience, but without references to date or time- this could be something individuals or groups could do at any time, at any pace. See the full index to learn more.

As a final project for the Open ds106 Course, you are asked to produce a story around a character that explores at least three of the media forms we’ve investigated in ds106: visual/design, audio, video, web, remix/mashup (Please note that for this project we’re combining visual and design as a single media form).

The idea is that you create a narrative arc for a character that is played out in the products of ds106 Assignments, one that is woven together with context and writing, published as a standalone blog post. A link your Mom would want on her fridge.

Step One: The Character
Step Two: Using Assignments to Generate Media
Step Three: Weaving the Story

And that is the end of this ds106 story. Or is it? May you all live happily ever after. That is definitely an option.
